Baker recommends this wooden coffee table inspired by classic Spanish design. A parquet-style inlay top pairs with twisted legs that feel like something out of an old villa. She loves how versatile this transitional (i.e. striking a balance between new and old) piece is and Griffin agrees noting that its lighter-wood tone mixes well with more traditional darker-toned pieces.
If you want an extra shelf with your black coffee table try this one recommended by Lester. She likes the ebony finish as a break from a more standard stained-wood table and she agrees with the Hoveys that it would anchor any seating area. She adds that the overall scale is conducive for use in a smaller living space. The slightly out-turned legs are vaguely mid-century if you`re going for that subtle nod.
Coffee tables are often a large element to a room so I would opt for more neutral or dark colors and materials. Playing with more unusual finishes such as resins or plaster finishes can be interesting. For a more casual comfortable feel you could also consider the more classical ottoman with a tray on top.
